their hands and to fix our broken immigration system. mr. speaker, last summer republicans and democrats in the senate came together and passed comprehensive immigration reform with a strong bipartisan vote, a vote of 68 to 32. 68-32. that's like a superduper majority. in fact, one poll last month showed that 63% of americans, 2/3 of americans, support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. business leaders, chambers of commerce, labor unions, faith groups, immigrant families, law enforcement officials, and americans of every race, creed, color, and ethnicity all across our country applauded our senators for reaching across the aisle. for many it really gave hope and belief in our government that we are still capable of putting aside political posturing and to build consensus around the difficult issues that face our country. but today as i speak americans are asking, what happened? they are confused as to why the house of representatives can't do the same thing that the senate did and pass immigration reform. they are even more confused as to why the house can't even dignify

or rejected including but not limited to comprehensive immigration reform which passed the senate over five months ago ending employment discrimination, which more than two-thirds of the country supports and a farm bill which the house gop used to slash food assistance by $40 billion and therefore assured its demise. so far the likelihood of a budget deal is anybody's guess as house budget chair paul ryan told "politico," we're talking but it's premature to say anything now. if the parties fail to reach a deal. or more likely if house republicans reject a deal, the government will again shut down on january 15th. and less than a month later on february 7th, the economic bomb that is the debt ceiling is set to go off. i can't believe i have to say both of those things again. with all of this hanging over his head speaker john boehner channeled his newman, what me, worry? approach to congressional deadlines. speaking before the break boehner seems completely nonplussed he provides over the least productive congress since world war ii. >> listen, we have a very divided country and a very divid
